Square Dance is a strip-friendly quilt composed of 36 blocks which are primarily constructed by 1 block design. 2-1/2 inch strips are cross-cut to make various sized patches. Some units are strip-pieced prior to assembly providing the means in which to efficiently sew 13 patches into a 10 inch block framework. Pieced patches are arranged to create two blocks: B1 & B2. Alternating & rotating blocks shapes the center of the quilt. Three borders are joined as one set, and attached to the center to complete the bed-size quilt.
Many, many thanks to Kara Headrick & Shawn Leighton for making “Square Dance ” look so good!
